Hexagon Gift Box

Hello Everyone

I had some giveaway projects on display for my team recently including a Hexagon Gift Box that I made some time ago. My lovely downline Sara picked up the box and was trying to figure out how to make it. You can see the box below on the left.


So I thought it was time to do a festive re-design and share it at my September classes. This box is made using the Mini Milk Carton Bigz die from Stampin' Up!

For the festive one I used the Season of Style DSP and Merry Minis Punch Pack, (in case you can't see this in your catalogue, these and other festive goodies are carried over from last year - ask me or your demo for details).






I also used the Christmas greeting from That's the Ticket and finished with the truly gorgeous Silver Ribbon from the new Autumn/Winter catalogue.

Stampin' Up! Inventory Organiser

Hello Everyone

Today I am sharing a project I am teaching at my Special Seasonal classes.  They were called Seasonal in September, but I am now doing an extra one in October....so now I need a new name! LOL

This is an organiser. Now it could be a festive organiser, but we have super ready-made one of those in the Autumn/Winter catalogue, so lots of my ladies are using their organisers as  Stampin' Up! inventories.

(This is so when they say, "Do I own the 1 inch circle punch - or did I buy the Gumball Green ink pad" - I can refer them to their lists! LOL)

I made the organiser in Smoky Slate textured cardstock, with some of the stunning Winter Frost DSP to decorate. The closure is made from the Smoky Slate Chevron ribbon, which is easy to tie into a neat bow.

Inside as well as areas for the lists, there is a wishlist note pad, (or possibly a Christmas list - you decide).

I gave them a link to the printed lined sheets so they could print more at home in on Whisper White cardstock.

I included a pen holder in the new elastic ribbon -perfect to keep a pen handy.

There are sections on both back and front, so six sections in total. Ideal for listing stamps, punches, dies, ink pads & markers, cardstock and accessories.

Hope you like!

Embossed two ways

Hello Everyone

I am sharing a birthday card today. This was a technique we are doing at class this month. It uses the Natural Composition Speciality DSP. We cut the DSP using the Deco Labels framelits dies from Stampin' Up!

We then sponged alternate frames with  Gumball Green and Early Espresso ink. When you wipe the excess away, the embossed part of the card has resisted the colour and you can create this lovely effect.


We used another embossed effect to finish the card. This time we used the Delicate Designs scallop edgelit to create texture and finished with four neutral Candy Dots.


If you are in the Hampshire area and would like to come along to next month's class, contact me for details.

Smile while you Grunge!

Hello Everyone

Today's card has a similar colour theme to one I showed earlier this month - and once again my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set has been in action.

The sentiment comes from the Happy Day stamp set and the edge done in Bermuda Bay cardstock is cut with the Large Scallop Edgelits.




A simple and quick card - I hope you like it.
